I dunno about you but I hate paying bills. It’s not so much about getting rid of the money ( although that part is stinky), is more about the accounting and making sure it’s paid on the correct date and getting the right amount and all of that stuff. For those things that I don’t have automatically paid, it’s a struggle every month. Usually there is a frantic middle of the night rush on the due date to pay the bill. What a blessing on line bill pay is.
So isn’t it good to know that as followers of the Christ, there is no due date. Well, there will be a judgement day, and for those not follower the Christ, that will be quite a problem. But for those who have put on the grace and mercy of Christ, your sins will have been paid in full, and on the due date, your balance due will be a big fat zero!
23May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (New International Version)
So, doesn’t knowing that you owe nothing and that its been paid for you provide some relief from the anxiety of the day and create a desire to repay that through your actions? Get out there and impact those around you today.
